Would you say that to your friend?
Thursday, July 28, 2016
I have read many times that we should not put ourselves down. Don't call yourself fat, or berate yourself just because you made an unhealthy choice. People always say that you would never say that to a friend, so you shouldn't say it to yourself either. I believe this to be true. Here are some other things I would not say to my friend:
"You are very stressed at work today. You should keep a bag of yogurt raisins in your desk, and eat about half a bag when you are really feeling the stress."
"Nobody is going to be home when you get there tonight. That would be a good time to have a few extra snacks. You know, something salty, then something sweet."
"You don't feel like exercising tonight? You should just sit on the couch, watch tv, and eat bonbons all night. You should never push yourself out of your comfort zone."
Be good to yourself; that doesn't mean always take the easy road.
